Somehow we didn't find it as a loop. We started out at a trailhead on North Franklintown and kept walking because we thought it was a loop but ended suddenly up at the end of the trail-4 miles in the opposite direction of the car at dusk with freezing winds. Never saw the waterfall!

The trail definitely needs maintenance but it's a beautiful park. Wonderful amount of migratory birds to see. I would explore the park beyond just the gwynns falls trail, there are many cool trails on the northwest end of the park, along with a pavilion and nature center.

Didn't feel safe. Read Yelp review about "murder problems" in the park. Didn't make it to the falls.

The trail is easy and flat in most parts. I started at the park & ride and quickly ran back to my car as I felt very unsafe by myself (car with blacked out windows repeatedly circling back and driving slowly by me when I'm alone. Nope!) I'm sure it would be fine most of the time. I ended up driving to the Windsor Mills Rd trailhead and started there. The scenery wasn't anything picturesque but it was nice to feel like I was outside of the city without having to drive too far.

the Alltrails address for Gwynns Falls Park took us to Switchback trail/McKeldon last weekend. That was a great trail! But now we're eager to try Gwynns Falls today.

Great trail for all levels of cycling. A few hills but mostly flat. Trail runs through the city but at times doesn't feel like it all. The sounds of the Gwynn falls river makes this ride truly serene at times. Trail is fairly maintained with a good mix of asphalt and off road. A little hidden gem in heart if city.
